    I really like Mhairi McFarlane's light novels and You Had Me at Hello was no exception. The story doesn't always hold together perfectly, but McFarlane write with a humorous touch and her characters are intelligent and likable. The story follows Rachel, a reporter with a local paper in Manchester, who had a best friend while in university, but they parted ways after graduation. Now Ben has moved to Manchester and they rekindle their friendship. Rachel likes her job and is training a new court reporter, who may be less scrupulous than Rachel. This is a fun, escapist novel about intelligent, likable people. Rachel is fun to spend time with, she loves her job, if not all her co-workers, and her friends are written as actual people who have more to do than be foils and sounding boards for Rachel. And the plot, slight though it was, moved along at a pleasant pace. I need to remember to read books like this one more often.

    I liked this book to a certain degree after I forced myself to read through a few chapters. I found it a little difficult to get into, at first, because of the authors over-the-top analogies; there were too many, and they seemed a little forced. The ending could also have been better. In saying that, it was light-hearted and the heroine's group of friends really put the fun into the story. All round, it was a nice read and. I would read another book by this author based on this book.

    An enjoyable read with believable characters and witty storytelling. Over-prolonged conflict felt tiresome, but good overall.

    Not bad, but not great. It's obvious from the start that this is a usual chick-lit story, but the ending is so pathetic. It's not romantic when a 30-something year old man leaves his wife for his university sweetheart! Sometimes it's better to have a not so happy ever after ending.

    Rachel und Ben waren an der Uni befreundet und treffen sich zufällig nach 10 Jahren wieder. Natürlich ist sofort wieder die alte Vertrautheit da, doch Ben ist verheiratet und Rachel soeben frisch getrennt. Eigentlich ist das Buch nicht sonderlich spannend, denn da die anderen potentiellen PartnerInnen als problematisch bis unsympathisch geschildert werden, ist klar, dass es nur eine Frage der Zeit ist, bis die beiden zusammen kommen werden. Da ist die Arbeitswelt Rachels als Gerichtsreporterin der eigentlich spannendste Teil des Buches. Aber das Buch ist oftmals witzig, schön englisch, süß und romantisch, kann man duchaus lesen.

    Your enjoyment of You Had Me at Hello will depend sorely on how much Ben you can tolerate. Sadly, I couldn’t tolerate much.This saddens me so much, because the premise for this book is wonderful. We’ve all had that one person who’s “got away”, so it is supposed to be easy to relate to this story.It starts off pretty strong too! We see Rachel & Ben in college, where it all started. Ben jokingly (and so cutely!!!) proposes to Rachel and then we’re thrust into present day, 13 years later. Rachel is unhappily engaged to someone else, and hasn’t heard from Ben in over a decade.For the most part, this book is told in past and present POV’s. The past POV shows us Rachel’s life with Ben in college, while the present POV tells shows us how Rachel has been dealing with her life after her fallout with Ben.What motivated me to keep reading was the fact that I wanted to know why they stopped speaking to each other.After I actually found out, I was left feeling so disappointed. It made me hate the situation even more and frankly removed an overall star from my rating.Rachel seems like a very put-together girl, and I value her honesty at the beginning and her courage to have broken off her engagement because she wasn’t happy. After this, when Ben comes into the picture she turns into this lovesick, indecisive, girl who is suddenly unable to speak her mind and decides to settle for whatever it is Ben can offer her.Which, let’s get this out of the way first: Ben is married. Yes, you heard me correctly. He is not only married, but also happily married. So now begins the constant hot/cold back and forth game between Ben & Rachel.I hate Ben. I seriously do. Ben is like this annoying rock in your shoe. You think it’ll stop annoying you eventually, but then it’s midday and the rock is really digging into your foot and you feel as if the only solution is to either cut off your foot or set the rock on fire (just me…?). Point is, whenever you thought you couldn’t get any more annoyed by Ben, there he went, annoying you even more!He said he loved his wife, he said he was happily married, he said he didn’t give a crap about Rachel’s love life, except that’s what it all was. Words. Whenever Rachel did as much as look at someone who wasn’t Ben, he would go all possessive and weird. And then everyone tries to make Rachel feel bad as if she were trying to break apart a marriage or something! I really couldn’t deal with something that was so clearly Ben’s fault.Something else that really bothered me was the ending. So much angst and drama! I really could’ve done without it. It left me with a bitter taste in my mouth, and a scowl for the rest of the week.What I did like was Rachel’s group of friends. They were all so quirky and fun! I wanted to be friends with them in real life. I also liked the college scenes because Rachel & Ben were much more tolerable then. There’s no doubt that Mhairi McFarlane is a great author, however this book needed much more editing and revision.Overall, a book that tells us that when the one who got away comes back, you have to act like a total idiot and wait until he gains the courage to either dump his wife for you OR lead you on and then dump you for his wife. Both outcomes WILL make YOU the villain of the story and everyone you know will very likely see you as a ho.Also, you are a monster who deserves no sympathy. And ugly. This book could have been something really great, but due to my strong dislike for the main characters, and the lack of real story, I really could not bring myself to rate it something more than 2 stars.
